SC Paderborn vs TSG Hoffenheim: Live Stream, TV Updates and How to Watch Bundesliga 2020



It has finished at the Benteler Arena with the points being shared. Skov gave the visitors the lead inside four minutes but the lead did not last long as five minutes later Srbeny latched on to a Bicakcic to level up the scores.

Both teams had chances to nick a second goal with Hoffenheim creating more it has to be said but Paderborn put in a performance that they could proud of.

However it is hard to see how they will survive in the Bundesliga now with only seven games remaining, and they are now five points away from moving out of the automatic relegation zone ,and a further nine points from moving out of the relegation play- off places.

90+3: Skov has a speculative effort from range that bounces in front of the goalkeeper but Zingerle manages to hold

90) Three minutes of added time to be added on. 


90) Paderborn themselves have had a chance to win it when Anti- Adjei managed to create himself space inside the area but his low cross was cleared away to safety by Baumann. 


87) Dabbur should have potentially won the game for the visitors when he was found unmarked from a Kaderábek cross, but his glancing header landed wide of the left hand post. Will that be a chance that Hoffenheim will regret missing come the end of the game.

87) Baumgartner goes down under a challenge inside the box but again the referee waves away the claims. 

85) Grillitsch kicks the ball out of play after Mamba goes down injured after challenging the midfielder. 


81) Paderbon make three changes as Vasiladis, Proger and Drager coming off for Jastzembski, Sabiri and Zolinski.

79) Baumgartener has another effort from outside the box but again it sails off target. 


76) Hoffenheim make a double change Beier who is making his debut and Geiger come on for Rudy and Bebou. 


75) Another inviting free kick from the right is met by Schonlau but his header is wayward and goes off target. 


73) Dabbur produces good footwork on the left hand side of the box but his driven shot is turned behind by Zingerle


72) A great chance for Paderborn to take the lead when a Collins cross from the left just misses Antwi- Adjei who was arriving at the near post. Any touch from the midfielder would have handed his side the lead. 

68) Antwi- Adjei cut in from the left but again his effort was blocked. 


67) Srbeny is booked for a late challenge inside Hoffenheim's half. 

66) Bebou cuts the ball back to Baumgartner inside the box who lost the ball but then went down under a challange by Schonlau but the referee said nothing doing

65) Progers low cross from the right goes across the face of goal but it just evades the three Paderborn players arriving in the box. 


64) Paderborn's top goalscorer Mamba comes on for Holtmann who it has to be said has not had a bad game at all. 


64) Drager has an effort from range which arrows just over Baumann's crossbar. 


63) Hoffenheim bring on forward Dabbur in the place of Zuber who has been quiet this afternoon. 


Gjasula earns a booking for a late challange on Bebou. That caution is his 14th of the season which is the most of any player in Bundesliga history at this point in the campaign. 

60) Paderborn create their first chance of the half when a Proger free kick from the left finds Hunemeier unmarked in the box but his header ends up just wide of the left hand post. 


57) A great move by Hoffenheim nearly leads to their second goal. A Kadarebek cross from the right finds Zuber at the back post and he finds Grillitsch but his effort is blocked out for a corner. 

53) Baumgartner picks up the ball outside of the area but his low shot is deflected out for a corner. 

51) Baumgartner is slipped in on goal but his low shot is straight at Zingerle. However the flag went up as Baumgartner was adjudged to be offside.

50) Grillitsch finds Kaderábek at the back post but his knockdown is cleared to safety by Schonlau.


48) Proger gets the better of Hubner on the right hand side and he bears down on goal, but he drags his low shot wide of the left hand post. 


45) Paderborn kick off the second period.

Both teams are making their way back on to the pitch and we are only a few moments away from the restart.


An entertaining first period comes to a close with scores level. Skov gave the visitors the lead inside four minutes when he slotted home a Kaderábek cutback.

However a Bicakcic mistake allowed Srbeny to hook the ball past Baumann which levelled up affairs.

Hoffenehim have had multiple chances to grab a second but have failed to do so as of yet, while Paderborn have also struck the crossbar at the other end.

Hope to see more of the same after the break.


42) A corner from the right is met by Posch but his header is straight at Zingerle. Despite having quite a few efforts on goal, Zingerle has not been tested too much. 

39) Antwi- Adjei is fouled around 30 yards out by Posch when he tripped up the midfielder when he skipped past Posch. 


35) Paderborn were very close to taking the lead when a Holtmann cross from the left is dangerous and Hoffenheim midfielder directs on to the crossbar after he was under pressure.

Nearly a very embarassing  moment there for the centre midfielder.

Side netting

33) Schreuders side create another opportunity as Posch has an effort from range which is hit with meaning but he can only find the side netting. 


32) Vasiliadis receives the first booking of the day as he pulls back Skov when he was breaking away for Hoffenheim.

30) Antwi- Adjei finds room down the left hand side but his shot is crowded out. 

29) Another effort from Hoffenheim, Skov has a shot from outside of the box that takes two deflection before going out for a corner. Surely it is only a matter of time before they get a second.  


28) Hoffenheim really need to start taking their chances as Kaderábek again is released down the right and his cutback finds Baumgartner inside the box but his first time low shot is tame and Zingerle again is able to hold.

26) Hoffenheim win a free kick after Collins clatters into Kaderábek when they both challenged for an aerial ball. 

25) Holtmann finds space on the left hand side of the box but he slices his shot wildly wide of the mark. 

Half Chance

22) A cross field ball finds Kaderábek on the right hand side of the box who cushions the ball down to Skov but he can't get a clean connection on the ball and Paderborn again clear.

The away side are beginning to take control of the encounter again.


20) A great chance for Hoffenheim to regain the lead when a long ball finds Skov, who brillaintly brings down the ball and loops it over Zingerle but Collins is able to recover in time and hook the ball to safety.

Hoffenheim then claim for a penalty as they believed Skov was impeded by the goalkeeper but the referee waved away the claims.

19) A cross from the left is half volleyed goalwards by Kaderábek but he does not catch it right and Zingerle is able to easily collect.

18) A long ball is aimed towards Bebou but he is unable to bring down the ball and it rolls through Zingerle. 

16) Since the equaliser, Paderborn have seemed to wake up as they are beginning to have more spells of possession on the ball and they look the more threatening side out of the two at the moment.

12) Antwi- Adjei is released down the left hand side but his low cross is deflected out for a corner.. Then the resulting corner kick was punched out for a throw in by Baumann. 


9) Paderborn level and what a gift it was. Centre back Bicakcic loses the ball just outside his area and Srbeny is able to latch on to the loose ball and hook the ball first time over Baumann and into the back of the net. 

A very cheap goal for Hoffenheim to concede after making a very promising start.


7) The away side had a decent chance to double the lead when Bebou neatly flicked the ball into Skov's path but he was unable to control the ball inside the box which allows Zingerle to collect.


4) Hoffenheim break the deadlock after a bright start when right back gets past Collins and cuts the ball back to an unmarked Skov and he just smashes the ball past Zingerle and into he roof of the net. 

A fantastic start for the visitors

2) Baumgartner gets down the left byline but under pressure he runs the ball just out of play and the referee awards a goal kick. 

Kick Off

Hoffenheim kick off this Bundesliga encounter on matchday 27.

Minute of silence

Both sides are out on to the pitch and the minutes of silence is taking place to pay tribute to those who have unfortunately passed away due to the covid-19 crisis.

In bad form but good form against Paderborn

Despite not winning in six, Hoffenheim have not suffered a defeat against Paderborn in their last five games against Steffen Baumer's side. 

Hoffenheim's good defensive record against Paderborn

The visitors will be confident that they will not concede many goals to their opponents, especially since that Alfred Schreuder's side have kept a clean sheet in all of the last five games that they have played against Paderborn in all competitions.

Both sides have only made one change from their previous game as for Paderbon, Gerrit Holtmann comes in for Dennis Jastrzembski.

Whereas defender Ermin Bicakcic comes in as centre back at the expense of Kevin Akpoguma who scored an own goal in Hoffenheim's 3-0 defeat at home to Hertha Berlin last weekend.

Hoffenheim: Team news

Hoffenheim's attacking options are very limited as top scorer Andrej Jamaric and forwards Ihlas Bebou and Sargis Adamyan may not feature due to injury problems.

Furthermore, Munes Dabbur may not play eitehr due to a lack of match fitness.

Consequently, this means that Jacob Brunn Larsen and 17 year old Maximillian Beier who is yet to have made a first team appereance for Hoffenheim as of yet are the only two forwards for Alfred Schreuder's side that are fully fit.

Paderborn: Team news

Forward Sven Michel and defenders Luca Kilian and Sebastian Schonlau missed training this week, but Steffen Baumgart believes that the latter who is the team's captain, will at least be in the matchday squad tomorrow and Baumgart hopes that he will be able to make the starting 11. 

Bad run of form for Hoffenheim

Despite only sitting four points behind the Europa League places, Hoffenheim have failed to win in the last six league games with their last victory coming on the 1st February, in a 2-1 home win against Bayer Leverkusen.

Paderborn's search for survival

With only eight games remaining, relegation to the Bundesliga 2 looks likely for Paderborn as they are six points away from moving out of the automatic relegation zone and they are a further ten points away from drifting out of the relegation play- offs.

Therefore, Steffen Baumer's side really need a victory tomorrow if they want to stand any real chance of achieving survival in the Bundesliga but this is something that has not come easy  to them this season.

This is because they have only won four games in the league so far this campaign and they have not managed to pick up three points in the last eight games with their last win in the league coming on the 25th January.

Kick-off time

The Paderborn vs Hoffenheim match will be played at the Benteler Arena in Paderborn, Germany.
